MP’s tell people to avoid ticket site Viagogo

MP’s tell people to avoid ticket site Viagogo
The battle against ticket touting has risen to the highest of levels, with a body of MPs now actually advising the general public against using a reseller. Viagogo has been the target of complaints and campaigns for a while, but the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee has now warned fans against using it, with much shade:
Viagogo has, according to the DCMS, “caused distress for too many music fans for too long…We believe that Viagogo has yet to prove itself a trustworthy operator given its history of resisting compliance, court orders and parliamentary scrutiny, and flouting consumer law.”
Indeed, “We regret that such time and public money is being spent on bringing the platforms, principally Viagogo, into line with consumer law that they should have complied with from the outset.”
Campaign groups have asked for more: a complete block on online access to Viagogo. 
Viagogo replied “We are disappointed that the DCMS have singled us out particularly, when hundreds of thousands of British citizens use our service to buy and sell tickets to their favourite live events every day and never experience any problems… We provide an invaluable service to UK consumers by giving them access to events in the UK and all over the world.
